    Most dangerous places to take a selfie: Cliffs of Moher, Ireland


    Most dangerous places to take a selfie: Cliffs of Moher, Ireland

    According to a recent study undertaken by Psychology Today, the more selfies you take and post onto social media platforms, the less likeable you become among your friends and followers. As the selfie craze takes the world by storm, it is fair to say that the fad is relatively harmless, albeit annoying.

    That being said, it is all too easy to be caught up in your selfie-snap and forget what is going on around you. This is known as smartphone fog and is responsible for a high number of today’s slips, trips and falls.

    Be selfie savvy: Avoid public accidents

    It is always important to have an awareness of what is going on around you, the people, your surroundings and any activity. When you become embroiled in capturing that perfect snap, you increase the likelihood of you experiencing a public accident.

    Some places are slightly more dangerous than others. When you are visiting breath-taking sites across the globe – AKA: ideal selfie spots – the nature of some of these locations makes you subject to public accidents such as trips and falls.

    A snap here is the perfect way to win the online selfie war. As a well-known Irish tourist attraction and with stunning views, all the elements are there to create a show-stopping selfie.

    Nevertheless, caution must be exercised; the height of the cliffs, the uneven and damp grassy grounding are also ideal conditions for public accidents, including trips and falls, of varying severity.

    Who is to blame for your accident in public?

    Whether you sustained an injury at the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland or any other location in the world, there is generally someone at fault, if you believe your actions did not cause the public accident. It could be that a restaurant owner or your local council is to blame, for failing to ensure their facilities are safe for public use.
